I joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 2005 as a Military Police reserve member. In 2008, I transferred to the Regular Force Military Police and, upon completion of my Police Academy training, was posted to CFB Halifax as a patrolman. During my time in Halifax, I deployed on a 10 month tour to Kandahar, Afghanistan where my job was to train the National Police. After Halifax, I was posted abroad to the Canadian Embassy in Moscow, Russia for 4 years. Upon my return to Canada, I was posted to CFB Edmonton where I held a variety of positions. In 2017 I deployed domestically to assist with the BC wildfires firefighting efforts. In 2018 I deployed on a 6 month peacekeeping tour to the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt as part of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO).

The Memory Project includes a community of over 1,500 veterans and Canadian Forces members who are committed to sharing their stories of service.
